There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Category Menu and Internet Explorer Issue - Opacity & Drop-Down

Hi there,

I am having two issues with my category menu in both IE and IE64, both Version 8:

Site: http://tvfrohnau.dextorslab.de/

(1) There should be a drop-down menu for two of the main menu items, which do not seem to appear.

(2) The menu itself should have some opacity. The setting I chose ist:

Code:
div#menu2 {
	height: 42px;
	width: 100%;
	margin-top: -42px;
	background-color: #361501;
	z-index: 5;
	position: relative;
	border: none;
	background: rgba(54, 21, 1, 0.55); /* R, G, B, A */
	filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#7f404040,   
        endColorstr=#7f404040); /* AA, RR, GG, BB */
}
The filter-setting has been suggested somewhere, to establish the opacity on the main menu level, but not on any of the childs. Maybe there is something wrong with that, causing both (1) and (2)?

Any advice is highly appreciated.

Best wishes

If you take it out do the menus show up?

Hi Juggledad,

I really don't know why I did not get that far to actually test it myself...

Anyway: yes, if I take out the filter it shows up correctly (at least confirmed for the
32bit version of IE8).

I could use the 'traditional' way of adding opacity to the menu, but that would be inherited
for the sub-menu items. And I don't want that to happen...

Any ideas for a workaround?

Best wishes

I tried to unset the filter on the sub menu.

Currently I test with only filter: alpha(opacity=60)

div#menu2 {
margin-top: -42px;
z-index: 5;
position: relative;
background-color: #361501;
background: rgba(54, 21, 1, 0.6); /* R, G, B, A */
filter: alpha(opacity=60);
}

div#menu2 ul.sub-menu {
filter: none;
}

This has no effect in IE. The drop down is not showing up.
In firefox it works as desired, because of the rgba-color definition.

Any more ideas?

don't use IE

I'd swap to twenty-ten and make the same changes in it's menu structure to see if it is a theme or general issue with IE.

Hi Juggledad,

currently I am low on time for experiments, so I will have to switch back to
a solution without any opacity in the menu.

Although it might be an interesting question for the community, I am sorry
that I cannot contribute any solution.

Keep up the great work!!!

Best wishes
